    One thought on “Doctor Who Short Trips: Farewells”

    1. I found the stories in this anthology to be a pretty mixed bag. I particularly enjoyed two of the 1st Doctor stories: one in which the Doctor, Iain, Barbara, and Susan take a road trip on route 66 to retrieve the TARDIS after the Doctor has lost it in a card game; and one set on Gallifrey that is utterly fanwanky in the best possible way. I also enjoyed a 3rd Doctorn story that took an unusual look at the emotional side of the character, and a typically wacky Paul Magrs 8th Doctor story. (Althou [...]

    2. I'm of two minds about this one. The "farewells" theme is kept relatively well, with only one or two stories sort of leaving you hanging on that point. Many of the stories are quite serious, which suits me fine, but honestly it's the comedy tales that are the most successful here."The Mother Road" is one of those theme-stretching stories, but it's a very enjoyable opening story, finding the original TARDIS crew traveling Route 66 and Ian ordering a "shake as thick as my arm" at a drive-in.

    3. nwhytevejournal/2779279mlAnother of the Big Finish anthologies, unusually taking the first eight Doctors in chronological sequence with stories about saying goodbye. A strong start and end, with the First Doctor taking Ian and Barbara along Route 66 and the Eighth Doctor re-enacting The Wicker Man with contemporary garden furniture, by Gareth Wigmore and Paul Magrs respectively. The others that grabbed me were an elegiac Fourth Doctor story, "Into the Silent Land" by Steven A. Roman, and a grim [...]

    4. A lot of the stories contained here are fairly sad, but with a title like Farewells it was expected. Another aspect that does come in more than once is that The Doctor is only in the story as a second character or in passing which I liked though sometimes I would have wished for more of him. The only thing that did get on my nerves is too many 5th Doctor stories (5 or 6), I would have preferred a little more balance between the Doctors.
